    Took the new bass to the band rehearsal today and it sounds very different from the IB5!

    Still have to lower the nut, replace the chinese strings by a good set, and then set up intonation and action properly, but it played pretty well on the hire Fender Rumble

    How did it sound Fred and which was your favourite PUP combination?

    Sounded great!
    The J pups tend to have a bit of noise if you don't have them both on, but it can mostly be filtered out.
    I think I kept the P pup on all the time as I just loved it. I had the bridge J by itself at one point but it wasn't quite the right sound for rock. Was missing some depth.

    The neck J sounds very deep. I guess it's a lot closer to the neck than it usually is since the p pup took its normal place, but very nice.

    I was missing some if the raw 'power' from the humbuckers in the IB5, but with the neck J and the P I was getting a pretty deep sound.

    And now that I have a second bass operational I'm going to be able to swap the IB5 chinese pup for the set of custom George Benson I ordered month ago. I'm very keen to hear how these guys sound!

    Hi Fred, possibly your PUP options might be in parallel as that tends to give that thinner sound when 2 or more are selected. I am in the middle of wiring up a push/pull mod on my J Bass to get the pair in series, same as what Ozzie did on his most recent J Bass, as that should beef up the sound as well as provide a bit more output too.

    Yep the 3x pups are in parrallel, with an on / off for each to take the pup and pot out of the circuit.
    Humm... you're getting me thinking about alternative wiring now!
